As usual... lots of things!
It's feeling very summery here today. I feel as though we are going to miss out on Spring altogether and just go straight into Summer. And although I am a lover of winter (well that would be a lover of Queensland winter!!) it is always nice for the change in seasons to come, You need a bit of variety hey?
The last few days have been around the 22 to 24 degrees and have been just lovely. My legs even got to see the sun today... first time in ages!
|Me and my Mum|
As this month is huge in my family for birthdays, my Mum has been putting off leaving so as to see everyone one more time, before she hit the road traveling again. I've been very lucky to see so much of her this year... I think I've seen her more this year than I have in the whole 9 years of her traveling.
|Mum, Frank and my youngest son, Jack|
Last week we got to catch up for lunch and it was wonderful as it was just 2 days before her own birthday. And as usual, we had to say :"goodbye:" again and it is always hard.
|Just had to add a pic of our lunch...rump steak and mushroom sauce!|
Another thing making me happy, is fresh, beautiful roses from my hubby. I love it when he has to go to the Gold Coast and passes the little rose farm on his way.... Aren't they just beautiful?
|My awesome speakers make me happy tooooo!|
Today is my day off... which means loads of housework to do. I don't know why, but listening to my favourite music (up loud) and singing and dancing along, always seems to make the housework less of a chore. I just love Guy Sebastians new single "Battle Scars"
I have been playing a great assortment of music today, including the Black Keys, One Republic and Fun. Love, love, love music. When the music is up loud, my cat meows along and it's hilarious. It really is like she's singing along... Why does she do that? It drives my son insane ha ha!!!
The washing got done, the house is (sort of) clean, the kitchen is back to normal...all is right in the household once again... and I enjoyed the sing and dance along as I went.
On another note... I want to send a shout out to all our local firies!!! Last week we had a pretty scary fire at the end of our street. It took off and escalated so quickly. The fire brigade was there before you knew it and they quickly took control. I can't believe how fast the fire traveled up the road. It is very dry here and it's been ages since we've had a real good dose of rain. This makes me think the summer/fire season is going to be pretty bad this year. Our firemen and women do a wonderful job and I am so grateful for them. Huge "Thank You" to you all.
Well I hope you are all having a wonderful, Happy Monday...
What's making you happy today????
Is it family? Warm weather? Just because roses? Singing and dancing? Being with the ones you love? Being grateful for what we have? or all of the above???
Have a good one...
